Have you ever made a decision that later on you regretted making? The answer to that question is, "of course." We have all made decisions that we wish we hadn't made. Sometimes those decisions don't really matter, yet sometimes they can significantly alter the course of our lives. The fool continues to make the same poor choices over and over. The fool doesn't learn from their mistakes. One poor decision after another. The wise person learns from the errors in the past and tries to prevent from making them again going forward.
So why do we make such foolish choices?
Well in some cases it is inexperience. We just don't have enough information or experience in a particular matter so we make an error in judgment. Fair enough. This is one way we develop as a child, through adolescent, to maturity as an adult. As we live our lives we add more and more experience to our knowledgebase. But in most cases as adults, our foolish choices are caused when we let our emotions get the best of us.

If you get your news from Entertainment tonight, if you think that Lady Gaga is the essence of classical music and if you believe it's only a matter of time before aliens invade our planet then you will also probably put a lot of weight in the results of the latest KBRA poll conducted by the Herald and News.
The paper is attempting to get the pulse of the people by asking, "Do you agree with the Klamath County commissioners pulling out of the KBRA?" As a community paper this is not a bad idea. However, if the results are reported as "news" instead of entertainment, that will be another sad commentary on the editorial staff. The reason this poll can not be viewed as anything but entertainment is because you can vote as many times as you'd like. I've already voted two times and might go back again after I'm done writing.
If you want to know how the public really thinks on the issue, see the following list:
